Big Grin The Ultimate Chinese Space Discussion Thread!

Hi all. With the importance of China rising in the spaceflight and space exploration frontiers, I am offering this thread for discussion on China's plans on the final frontier...

Stay tuned for news and more information on China's spaceflight program!

Staff note: For mission specific news, please use mission specific threads in the Space Flight News forum.

I think it's best to keep threads discussing plans and facts apart.

Yay, I'm a fan of Chinese space.

Perhaps I can get a better idea of whats going on than before when using google translate all the time.

I cant wait until they send their first human to the moon in 2075(50 years after everyone else)

China is super slow i dont expect anything good from them within the next 100 years...

They are building a space station but they are doing it 50 years behind everyone else...

Galactic Penguin, can you, please, write down and translate the phrases used during countdown at Chinese launches that get aired on TV? It's really useful to know when to begin clutching into my chair's arms! (I have got used to do that when I hear "TEN - NINE - IGNITION SEQUENCE STARTED - SEVEN..." )

Seriously mate. The only reason the USSR and the USA put humans in space was because of the Cold War.

Look at your closest ally, the UK. We have done nothing in terms of space.

The People's Republic are taking it at a pace that suits them, they don't care too much for ignorant Sinophobic persons like yourself.

And also. the USSR's Salyut 1 was launched in 1971.

The PRC's Tiangong 1 is of similar size and will be launched just over 40 years since the launch of Salyut 1.

By 2020 they should have their first Mir-sized modular Space Station in orbit. And they also have a very good indigenous spacecraft at their disposal. It is far in advance of any of the USSR's or the USA's first capsules. Definitely.

And as I say. Europe have yet to put a man in space with their own equipment.

Does that make us super slow? No.

Not all americans are like that, just saying. I like developments in Chinese Space Programs. I'm just hoping they will want to look more at the scientific side of things instead of militaristic applications in space.

Well, they have a first spacecraft like this because they "borrowed" the Soyuz's blueprints. In the time of the first American and Soviet capsules, there was nothing for them to use as a base.
But yeah, I agree with the rest.

But thats a good thing. They should be using the Soyuz design. Its the best capsule design you can use.

Tiangong 1 is set to be launching soon, I wonder how long after it launches we will see Shenzhou 8 go up?

Actually in terms of solo development it does as far as manned space flight is concerned. Oh and your previous "ignorant sinophobic americans"statement is one of the most ignorant and generalized terms i've heard in a while.
